Lufft USA has announced the addition of MODBUS to its list of communication standards, making it one of the most flexible wind and weather assessment products on the market today. Lufft USA announced that its complete “WS” line of weather stations are now available with MODBUS data protocol in addition to SDI12, ASCII, UMB, NMEA, and analog.
MODBUS allows for communication between many devices connected to the same network, for example a system that measures temperature and humidity and communicates the results directly to a computer or programmable logic controller or PLC. MODBUS is often used to connect a supervisory computer, sensor, or group of sensors with a remote terminal unit (RTU) in supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems. Sensors that communicate via MODBUS are commonly used in renewable energy, building automation, and other industrial processes. Lufft USA believes that the addition of this common method of industrial communication to its list of digital protocols will allow its weather stations to measure climate parameters with nearly any industrial project.
